If you're craving more racing action on the Virtual Console, 1080 is well worth a look. It still has some of the best snow effects we've experienced to this day, and the gameplay is second to none.
IGN (Jan 29, 2008)
1080 Snowboarding is no longer the best-looking, best-playing, most satisfying interpretation of snowboarding ever released in video game form, but it's still incredibly solid and a whole lot of fun even a decade after its original release. Be warned that you won't be able to achieve consistent victory right away if you're new to the 1080 series – the learning curve for getting a proper handle on how to handle your board takes a while. But once you've mastered it, you'll have a blast. 1080's definitely worth its 1000 Wii Point asking price – it's the best classic game released on the Virtual Console so far this year.

TenEighty is a welcome addition to the VC. It's one of the N64 games that lots of people have been hoping to see on the system, and it holds up well in 2008 without the benefit of rose-tinted glasses. Huzzah.

This is where 1080 falls down hardest. There just isn’t enough content here, which is a crying shame as this is one of the best simulations of snowboarding ever produced. As it stands, it’s still a worthwhile purchase and if you know you can get a friend involved then you’ll spend countless hours racing each other through that magical powder, but if you’re flying solo then you might want to consider something with a bit more meat on the bone.

1080º Snowboarding es de esos juegos que no envejece. Si bien su secuela para Gamecube es netamente superior, 1080º Snowboarding es uno de los grandes clásicos de Nintendo 64 que seguro aún permanece en la memoria de muchos de sus jugadores. Ahora, gracias a la consola virtual de Wii, aquellos que no lo conocieron en su momento podrán disfrutar ahora de su magnífica y suave jugabilidad, y, porque no, de su banda sonora.

1080° Snowboarding ist auch heute noch ein gutes Spiel. Die glaubwürdige, simulationslastige Steuerung stellt bis heute eine der besten dar, die es gibt, und katapultiert den Spielspaß von ganz allein nach oben. Da stört es dann auch weniger, dass das Spiel - entsprechendes Können vorausgesetzt, da der „schwere“ Cup den Namen durchaus verdient hat - mal locker an einem Nachmittag durchgespielt sein könnte. Es kommt vor, dass ihr nach einem Monat wieder von der Lust gepackt werdet, das Snowboard rauszuholen, um den Schnee unter dem Brett zu spüren. Für Highscore-Freunde wird sowieso genug geboten, denn dafür ist der Wettbewerbungsmodus genau richtig. Während die Technik in Ehren gealtert ist, bleibt der Spielspaßkern so jung und spritzig wie und eh und darauf kommt es doch an, oder?
